Audience Reviews for The Unborn

  • Nov 27, 2015
    Written and directed by David Goyer, The Unborn is a dull and morose supernatural thriller. The story follows a college student named Casey Beldon who begins to have strange visions and comes to believe that she's being stalked by a malicious spirit. Lead actress Odette Yustman has no charisma and gives a completely lifeless performance. And, the script is poorly written and is hard to follow (despite numerous exposition dumps). Additionally, the imagery, while disturbing at times, isn't altogether that scary. Uninspired tripe, The Unborn is a monotonous and poorly made film.

    Pretty good. Scary, and interesting, especially because it explores an unfamiliar topic. Having Gary Oldman in this film was a great idea by the way, 'cause he's pretty awesome here.

    Not as bad as I thought, Wasn't scary, The plot was same old same old, But had something about it that kept me entertained.

    david goyer should stop directing from he's own writing because he has yet to score a bona fid hit. special effects rob the film of any real menace and the cast full of great actors are wasted in minor roles.
